Another e-commerce website, this time WebMall, is set to launch its own logistics management app named Saddle.

In a press release, the company says Saddle will interface with mobile POS (mPOS) devices and is specifically designed to support the Payment-on-Delivery model. The app which will be available for other e-commerce businesses to use, will allow merchants and customers track purchases and deliveries in real time and will also integrate the merchant’s bank accounts with the mPOS devices, which will enable customers pay with their cards.

“WEBMALL… has reached an agreement with a major Telco to roll-out mPOS devices by the end of August and is set to launch Saddle as the first value-added app on its mPOS Product roadmap. It is also expected that Saddle will be adopted by major Logistics solution providers including Red Star Plc already doing deliveries on WEBMALL”, the release read.

Yesterday, Konga also revealed their plans to launch a logistics management system of their own (MERCURY), to third party merchants and other ecommerce businesses.
